Re: Underwater "structure" in NW Wis?
- Steve Garcia., Herb, and All
I see from the enlargement in your (Steve G.'s) email what you are
referring to and perhaps send the enlargement to Herb's emailbox, too.
With the imprint of the green into the circle on the unenlarged photo
on Herb's web site, I am wondering if Herb might have laid a circular
tripod or other poles into silt/mud into the river bottom at that
spot to cause the imbedded circular 'ring' since Herb has the photos
and was there. Herb, is there a lot of silt in parts of the river,
and what do you think? I was snorkeling at Rock Lake near Madison
years ago after a sweat lodge by a bunch of New Agers after reading
Frank Jospeh's Pyramids of Rock Lake book. Deep, deep silt, and he
speaks of the difficulty of investigating rock or any other
structures beneath deep, still water such as lakes, esp. in
agricultural or urban areas.
Sorry I am posting so much but at a dormant time away
from 'fieldwork' and most of us are up at least to our knees in snow,
isn't this armchair line of inquiry interesting? Remember that some
of this group's data can be applied to other, future leads and
avenues of investigation.
